The Lothians region
Edinburgh is a city steeped in history and its stunning rich architectural heritage is now recognised as a World Heritage Site.
With over 4,500 listed buildings, Edinburgh is world-renowned for its rich architectural heritage. The two main areas of particular interest in this historic city are the Old Town, which includes the medieval fortress of Edinburgh Castle, and the neoclassical New Town which dates back to the 18th century. The juxtaposition of medieval architecture with neoclassical terraces gives Edinburgh its own unique character.
Together, the Old and New Towns were listed as a World Heritage Site in 1995, a status which will conserve Edinburgh's magnificent architecture for future generations to enjoy. Following this, the Edinburgh World Heritage was created in 1999 and is funded by Historic Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council. The charity aims, amongst other things, to monitor the site's state of conservation and fund conservation projects.
The Old Town features the tourist hub of the Royal Mile, a long street exactly one Scots mile long, featuring a medieval castle, narrow closes, Reformation buildings, kirks, turrets and plenty of nooks and crannies. Head over to the New Town and you will find the grand Georgian Terraces, more suited to the figures of the Scottish Enlightenment who wished to escape the over-crowded Old Town.
For more information visit the Edinburgh World Heritage website:
Newhaven is a district in the City of Edinburgh, Scotland, between Leith and Granton and about 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the city centre. Formerly a village and harbour on the Firth of Forth, Newhaven was designated a conservation area, one of 40 such areas in Edinburgh, in 1977.
It has a very distinctive building form, typical of many Scottish fishing villages, with a 'forestair' leading to accommodation at first floor level. The lower ground floor was used for storing nets. More modern housing dating from the 1960s has replicated the style of these older buildings.
Victoria Primary School, established in the 1840s, is a historic building in Newhaven Main Street and the oldest local authority primary school still in use within the City of Edinburgh.
The new Western Harbour development extends north into the Firth of Forth from Newhaven. It is also the home of Next Generation Sports Centre (now named David Lloyd Newhaven Harbour), where the tennis player Andy Murray regularly played as a youngster.
ABOUT THE PORT OF LEITH
Leith is the port of Edinburgh, sitting at the mouth of the Water of Leith on the Firth of Forth. The area's prosperity was built on ship building, whaling, and import and export trades. Most of the docks are no longer operating and after a period of decline, when the area was known for the seedier side of Edinburgh life, Leith has undergone a regeneration, with large offices housing the Scottish government bureaucrats and other white collar workers and new housing, restaurants and shops being developed. Ocean Terminal is a large shopping mall that also houses restaurants and the Royal Yacht Britannia, used by the British royal family until 1997, it is now a visitor attraction accessed from the 2nd floor of the building. Ocean Terminal is easily accessed by frequent buses from the centre of Edinburgh and there is also free parking.

"Loved this quirky apartment"
Angie was there to greet us. Not in the heart of Edinburgh but we had a car and a carpark available so not a problem. It was great to cook in, and have room to move. Had a small view of the water and loved this quirky apratment. Enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh and wish we could have stayed longer.

"Quirky and quiet accommodation by the sea"
We had a lovely three nights at this apartment by the sea, about 15 minutes from the centre of town by car. Angie, the lady who greeted us, was very pleasant and welcoming. The apartment itself was homely, brimming with interesting books, films and teabags.
A very quirky and interesting place to stay, would definitely recommend.

"A great flat 10 mins from the city"
This was a great flat with a convenient location only being a short bus ride from the city centre. The flat provided a comfortable and relaxing stay. There were views of the Firth of Forth as well as all mod cons. A great place from which to explore the city and beyond. Would definitely try and book it again, great value for money.
